Homework 13/6/19 (due in on Monday 1st July – 2 weeks to complete)

I can design and make a PITCHED musical instrument.

In our Science topic this term we are studying how sound travels and the different pitches that musical instruments can make.

For your homework over the next TWO weeks we would like you to design and make a pitched musical instrument to perform in our class orchestras!

Please ensure your finished product is of a high quality, has a variety of pitches and is pleasing to look at.


In Year 5 children are required to complete 2 MA tests per week, unless told otherwise. This will be set on a Thursday and handed in by the following Wednesday at the latest. It is imperative that all corrections are completed before starting a new test. However, if your child is struggling to correct these, they should feel free to ask his/her teacher for any help required.
